Sitehopping – A Better Way to Entrecard Dropping?

logo from Sitehopping@Entrecard

While I was busy dropping cards and reading posts, I noticed that more and more blogs have this widget from Sitehopping.com. I thought this is just another blog who does it good in placing ads on blogs. However, I started to read blog posts about it and some bloggers even invited me to join them. I was hesitant because it might be another burden for me but I will not get something in return. Not until I read this very interesting post at Josh's Unconventional Marketing Blog. This made me visit the blog and took time to read their offer. Here is what I found out.

Free Traffic

After you signed in, you may be able to get free traffic through beer credits. Yes, beer credits my friends and they admit that they actually drink beer at work because they work in an apartment where they treat it like home. Anyway, these beer credits can be earned through multiple ways. But what surprised me is you can earn them through site hopping or visiting other blogs like we do at Entrecard. Other means of earning credits are by rating the blogs, placing comments, blog submission and for the biggest points, putting their widget on your blogs. You can also win them if you will be the King of Hops.

So what are they for? For every 10 beer credits, you will gain 1 unique visitor through their beer algorithm. As of this posting, you just need a minimum of 4 beer credits or more than 3 beers on the wall. This means the higher beer credits or number of beers you have on the wall, the greater chance your blog will be chosen first. Getting more interested?

Browse only your selected blogs

They have this Slide Show mode where you can browse or view other blogs. The good thing is that you can decide if you want to select Shuffle where the blogs are being browsed randomly or Iterative where you can choose what type of blogs you want to view, Entrecard-internet-marketing for example. In addition, you can do it manually or automatically which mean even while you are sleeping. You can also set the time a blog should stay before allowing another to open. You can tag these blogs and visit them later. This is like choosing blogs where you want to drop your Entrecard. This is also like surfing the net in an iPod.

Earn money

I suppose that this is what you are hoping for to read. All members are invited to buy beer stocks from them as investment. The principle is the same as any Stocks Exchange. You can wait until it grows or you can sell them later or immediately after buying them. You can also use them to promote your blogs. Furthermore, as a beer stocks holder, you are also entitled to be their affiliate member. Well, I think that make sense. I do not have these beer stocks yet but hopefully I can have some soon.

Now is it a better way to Entrecard dropping? Dropping cards while earning beer credits and gaining free traffic, why not? However, I just enrolled my blogs yesterday so I cannot say yet that it is really effective for me. Anyway, I will be monitoring its performance and just like what I am doing for Entrecard, I will try my best to update you some other time.

I seem to be getting about 20 extra hits a day from SiteHopping - I added my blog about 3 days ago. So far so good...

Hi Offgrid,

You can get more than 20 if you will have strategies.

I got close to 200 for 3 days.

Happy blogging.

Sitehoppin' is rather complicated for me. That's why I haven't joined it.
